The authors introduce students to the fundamentals of psychology and the latest cutting-edge research through a pedagogical framework designed to keep students engaged, motivated, and learning actively. Pedagogy based on the science of learning encourages time-on-task while facilitating long-term retention. The fourth edition introduces "Psychology: Knowledge You Can Use" boxes. Each of these new features shows students the immediate utility of a main concept discussed in the particular chapter. By applying the science of learning and making connections to students' everyday lives, Psychological Science, Fourth Edition, addresses how, where, and why students learn.
